One of the first things Victor Peca, a broker at Morcan Financial in Concord, Ont., does when he greets me is to reach behind my back and check the tag on my vest.
Mind you, he does askwhere it's from first, but before I can blurt out 'I don't know,' there he is, flipping the back of my collar inside out to read the tag aloud.'Club Monaco, not bad,' he says, hitting me on the chest. 'Good stuff there.' While we literally just met a few seconds ago, the casualness in which he breaks down the private space barrier makes it feel more like getting together with an old friend from school, which sets the tone for the rest of the interview.
